The welfare of students is of paramount importance. You have the right to feel safe. Other people should not hurt or abuse you. If someone is hurting/abusing you, you shouldn’t:
- Feel embarrassed or alone
- Feel that it is your fault or that you are to blame
- Keep it a secret
- Feel afraid
The College has a Safeguarding team with trained staff available on all sites. The team is here to help you if you are worried or concerned about yourself or someone you know, please email email@example.com or contact the Assistant Manager for Safeguarding and Resilience 01639 648033.
All students will be issued with a lanyard and ID badge at enrolment. In order to ensure the safety and security of all students and visitors, it is required that students wear these at all times while on campus. Staff also wear lanyards, as do visitors.
